Kampai in my opinion is the best sushi place in Lebanon. I go there often and enjoy the food. The staff are so friendly and provide lots of information about the sushi and other foods. This is an amazing sushi place an do highly recommend it!! I spent my grandmothers 66th birthday there and they say sang happy birthday with us and we're so so kind!! Thank you Kampai!!

This is the best sushi restaurant in Beirut. There is no match in variety, freshness, or taste. Though the price tag is above the average, but totally justified.

I am giving Kampai a 5 because finally there is a sushi joint worth eating at when I visit Lebanon. The location of this restaurant is semi-hidden which gives you a nice urban feel when you get there. The interior is bright and fresh which allows you to focus on the presentation of the platters that are served. The salads and the starters are phenomenal. The sushi is very good and the best I have had in Lebanon so far. The staff are very professional and welcoming and the restaurant manager himself checked up on our table to make sure all was well. I highly recommend this place for dinner with friends. The Asian fusion main course I tired was a bit bland, however the rice they served was top notch and so were the steamed dumplings. Kampai is all about the Japanese and Asian fusion starters and sushi.

You cant give more stars for lebanese sushi. The place is a bit snobish, i saw people who are having sushi just for the sake of having sushi not because they like it. Expensive and small portions. Waiter wasnt helpful or friendly and didnt help with menu( my question was "what is ur speciliaty rolls" his answer was" we dont have any" ) thats a dumb rude answer! If u compare sushi to canada, usa and europe u wont like it, but compared to lebanese standards its ok. And ill recommend it. Crowded , comfortable seats, i loved the water . All in all a good experience

Sushi is good, too noisy place due to a low ceiling ! You can not even listen and understand what your friends on the same table are telling you.

The food tastes good in the restaurant, good service. The restaurant is usually crowded, so its better to get a reservation. The sushi wont taste as good if you order it delivery. Its kinda saggy.

I tried more than 30 sushi restaurants in my life (in Lebanon and abroad). This is the perfect one ever! Better than Nobu! It has unique sushi and makis. The manager continuously develops the menu: innovation is the key of success! Great place (a little bit noisy when you have table of women)

Great taste and unique sushi. They have their own specialties. Good ambience and service. Place is narrow/tiny for a big group.. fits better for couples or small group.

I give it a 5 star for everything , food atmosphere, service. What I don't understand is why they don't have music playing! The mood should be guided by something other than the conversation happening next to me!

Overrated and tasteless especially if you have been outside of Lebanon! I personally prefer Maki and Le Sushi Bar. Their food is way better.
